With the 2015 NFL season kicking off Thursday, people are already looking to the Super Bowl to speculate on who will be performing at the Super Bowl halftime show. While most people would say that’s crazy to think about in Week 1, there are already rumors swirling about who will take the stage, and it’s a very familiar face.
Only two years after his first performance, Bruno Mars has reportedly, according to Billboard, been tapped to take the reins of the year’s most-watched musical performance once again. Now, while this isn’t entirely foreign — Gloria Estefan, Nelly, and Justin Timberlake have all been multiple performers — never has an act been asked back so soon. In fact, Mars hasn’t even released new material since his last appearance; he’s only appeared on “Uptown Funk.”
With that in mind, we wanted to offer up a few ideas of who could take the Super Bowl stage instead of the still fairly fresh “Locked Out of Heaven” singer. Here are seven artists we’d rather see perform at the Super Bowl than Bruno Mars.
